Occasionally I'm Right

Harriet Miers will not be confirmed, as she withdrew her nomination today. I second Lucas's skepticism over at Daily Contentions that her withdrawal has to do with whether she would turn over documents related to her tenure as White House Counsel. Her nomination was becoming more troubled by the day, and it was going to take a great performance at the confirmation hearings to get confirmed. Now President Bush has a second chance to get this pick right, and remember George there are plenty of well qualified conservatives who have actually thought about constitutional issues for more than two weeks such as Samuel Alito, Michael McConnell, Edith Jones, Michael Luttig, Priscilla Owen and Edith Brown Clement just to name a few.
